Queen Margrethe set off today on the second leg of this year’s annual summer cruise around the islands of her country. Today’s itinerary included visits to Kongsøre Naval Station along with stops at Dragsholm Castle, an children’s educational art program, a manufacturing facility, Algade town center, a nursing care centre, an art museum and a former fish market all located in Odsherred Municipality.
For this busy day of events, Queen Margrethe repeated the red bumper hat she first wore back in May. Today’s better view of this piece show it to be a bumper design with wide cuff brim embellished with stitching around the brim edge and a flat patterned bow at the side. Seeing this hat in full confirmed my initial assessment that while it is not the most exciting of millinery designs, it tops a vibrant and balanced ensemble that looks great on Margrethe. This is one of the times when the whole picture works better than a hat on its own and I particularly like how the streamlined cut of the coat are enlivened by the high contrast pattern on Margrethe’s dress.

Skoleelever i Odsherred Kommune fik i dag kunstnerisk inspiration af H.M. Dronningen. Det skete på førstedagen af årets sidste sommertogt, hvor Dronningen besøgte kunstprojektet "GeoKids", der er en del af et undervisningstilbud for skoleelever i kommunen. #sommertogt2016 📸Scanpix
